friday january 15

today i asked my roommate to help me get a shirt on over top of my cast. as she took off my sling, she gasped, noticing a bruise on the back of my arm that she dubbed one of the worst she'd ever seen. if you just looked at the skin on my arm at that spot, she said, you'd think i was a black person. unsure of how to react to this news, i joked that if nothing else, at least this injury had resulted in my lifelong dream of being more black coming true.
